Pumakitty's post about changing the light fixture made me think of starting this thread. I am including her story and my response as a start.
The question is:
What "funny little thing" have you learned or changed as a result of H&N cancer and treatment?
I have gotten a lesson in what the new normal means. My dad is very good at doing any type of home improvement. Last weekend I bought new porch lights for my house. Well, when we went to put of the light my dad could not reach it with out standing on a ladder. He is still not strong enough that we would let him do that. So guess you wired the new light, ME! My dad stood on the porch and gave me instruction and I did the work and by some mircle the light works.
We had such fun and he realized that he can still do all things things he did before with just some adjustments along the way.
I will be attempting more electrical work on Sunday, when we do the one on the front porch.
My new little normal:
I have always hugged Mark with my right arm up above his shoulder and my left arm down around his waist. We are not little people so I could always give him a big squeeze. Now, because of the neck disseection on the left side, I have to hug him with my right arm down and my left arm up and a little less umph! This has not been an easy adjustment to make, I flap my arms up and down a little until I figure which goes where, and hugs are a little less spontanious...but it will get there.
